Clarus

Clarus — that's the name of the pattern for the second part of the lace knitting class I was talking about in this post. The shawl I made from this pattern was finished, including the blocking, today! :) This one is a good deal larger than the first one was, so that gives me some variety. Keep in mind that I'm a beginner at lace knitting and haven't knitted anything at all in several decades, so there are mistakes in the shawl. Still, I'm pretty pleased with it. The yarn was a dream to work with, very soft and easy to use, and the shawl almost seems to float because it's so lacy. 

The class itself was really good. It's on the Craftsy site, where they offer classes in all sorts of things from gardening to jewelry making, crochet, knitting, quilting, and goodness knows what else. One nice thing about the classes is that there's a forum for showing pictures, asking questions, and commenting; and you can take and retake the same class as many times as you like. Nice!
